Adopt-a-Trail Workday (Paw Paw)

Saturday, August 22, 2015, 9:00 AM – around 1:30 PM

We will be clearing our adopted trails (Boardwalk Loop, Weston Lake Loop Trail, Oakridge Trail and Sims Trail) prior to Labor Day weekend.  Though the weather will be warm, trail-clearing duties in August usually focus on lighter activities, including cutting back switchcane.  There are always some ripe paw paw to sample as a trail snack too.

We will meet at the Visitor Center at 9 AM and will finish in the early afternoon.  Insect repellent, work gloves, light hiking boots, plenty of water, and a snack are recommended.  If you have loppers, long-handled shears (good for switch cane) or bow saws, bring them along.  Friends members and Park staff will provide gear if you do not have any.  Please contact John Grego (; 803-331-3366) if interested.
